Overview

New York Times bestselling author Brian Jacques tells a haunting tale at sea from The Castaways of the Flying Dutchman series!

Ben and his Labrador, Ned, castaways from the legendary ghost ship Flying Dutchman, swore never go to sea again-but a mishap in South America lands them aboard a French pirate ship with not one, but two villainous sea captains in pursuit. To make matters worse, Ben is still haunted by visions of Captain Vanderdecken, whose ghost seeks vengeance on the former cabin boy. And that is only the beginning of their adventures!

I read this book and loved it! This book has everything! Adventure, comedy, friendship, and cliff hangers that makes you keep wondering "what's going to happen?". This book is for everyone and it is a "can't put it down". After you finish this book you must continue with the next one. I highly recommend this book for people who love adventure books!

When I read this book, I felt that this was the book for me. What I like about the book is that there are multiple perspectives to this book. that way I'll be excited to read the next part of the book. Some times the perspectives mesh together. That's alright with me. Makes an encounter happen. Then it'll be even more exciting. What drove me to buy the book was because I read a lot of Brian Jacques's books. He does the same with all of them. I'm not saying thats bad though. My favorite part in the book is when the privateer gets a new ship to ride. Although thats a bad thing, I like it when captain Red jack Teal loads up with grape shot. My least favorite part is when Adamo comes in with Arnela and Karay on his back. It made me not want to look for a little while but then, I read on.

This book is phenomanal. It has more action than the first book, but you have to read the first book for this one to make any since. This book has the most action and adventure packed into one book that I have ever seen! This book is crazy good.

I liked this book far better than the first one. They spent more time fighting pirates and less time solving riddles. I just couldn't get over the high seas chase, and the adventure into the mountains. This book should be read by everyone.
